Martin Freeman’s Role For Civil War/Anthony Mackie Interview
Martin Freeman, know for being Watson in BBC’s Sherlock and Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit trilogy, has been a part of Marvel Studios Civil War movie since they started filming. Unclear, however, was which role he would play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That has now been cleared up by Empire magazine. Freeman is going to play Everett Ross, who is known by Marvel die hards as the US government liaison to Wakanda, Black Panther’s homeland.
While this is not the most exciting role for an actor of that calibre, it remains to be seen how the film will utilise the character. Probably in a similar way as Guardians of the Galaxy use Glenn Close to attract non comic book fans to the film.
Anthony Mackie was also interviewed by the magazine and had this to say about Civil War:
*“Having seen the movie, it’s Marvel’s best movie thus far. And I’m being honest — if a Marvel movie sucks, a movie in the Marvel universe, I’ll tell you it sucked… ‘Winter Soldier’ and ‘Iron Man 1′ are probably Marvel’s two best movies. I feel like [Captain America Civil War] beats both of those movies. It’s really, really good. Because it’s more of an acting movie than an action movie, I feel like the story is very concise and interesting, and you get to see Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans and Scarlett Johannson and Mark Ruffalo and everybody just do really, really good acting. And then there’s action in it. The great thing about being in a Marvel movie? They have really good actors. I mean, Don Cheadle is in the Marvel Universe! I think it might be the first superhero movie that might be up for Best Picture” *
He name drops Mark Ruffalo, who until now hasn’t been confirmed for this film. Hmmmmm???
Here are some more images from Empire’s article about the film:
Either way, Civil War is only two months away now and we couldn’t be more excited! Are you team Cap or Team Iron Man?

First Image of Guardians of the Galaxy
James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, shared the first picture of the now shooting sequel to Marvel Studios’ amazing sci-fi opera which you can check out above.
The film has been shooting for a bit over a week now and also casted Kurt Russell in a still unconfirmed role. He is suspected to play the MCU version of Peter Quill’s father, which won’t be the same guy as in the comics.
